Forum: GratefulDead Subject: When will public uploading of GD audience recordings be re-activated?

I'm working on a project with some audience recordists from the early > mid 1980's and we are in the process of digitizing their analog masters. We are in possession of ~350 masters and ~200 1st or 2nd generation recordings that aren't in circulation in the digital realm.

Our goal is to get these all up on the archive eventually, both in the original high resolution format (24 bit, 96 kHz) and the cd-ready (16 bit, 44.1 kHz) format.

Currently they are being archived to dvd-r.

Getting these recordings transferred and archived is a high priority for us, so we would like to know what the timeframe is regarding public re-activation to the upload area for the Grateful Dead.

Thanks you for your time.
Tim Burke

Step 1 - submit info, flac ffp and flac-md5 files to the etree database to get shnids. The etree databse of circulating sources is the main tracker for what we have and what we are missing on the GD sources here on the Archive.

Step 2 - Follow the etree naming convention for the directories you want to upload, including the shnid.

Step 3 - torrent the shows somewhere obvious (bt.etree.org) to make them available to the public

Step 4 - we will grab the sources off the torrents and get to the archive in batches.

Contact me if you have questions

matthew, because of our own bandwidth restrictions and the rampant non-seeding issues pertaining to downloaders on bt.etree.org, the 24/95 flac filesets are not planned on being torrented anywhere; only the 16/44 versions.

Can we arrange to send physical copies of the 24/96 files to the GIAP and have y'all upload them?
